Corks new weekend food and craft market. Check out our social media pages for all updates. Meanwhile Guji Coffee Bar and Wild Hogs Food Truck open every day, plus extra stalls every weekend!
Tree-lined Centre Park Road every day hosts hundreds of walkers, cyclists and joggers - like the lungs of the Cork city centre where people love to commune with nature. With the great construction projects, current and future, the market will undoubtedly offer a treasured traditional experience adjacent to modern city developments.
The market brings new life and energy to one of the city's oldest industrial sites just a short stroll from the city centre on the banks of the River Lee. It provides a fabulous family experience in the heart of the city, one that is easily accessible along the Blackrock to Cork city centre cycle-and-walk greenway via the recently pedestrianised Marina Walk.
We are taking every precaution to adhere to all recommended HSE social distancing and hygiene guidelines so everyone is kept safe and can enjoy this great family day. At the moment we are operating a take-away service only to comply with HSE guidelines
Setting the tone and aroma we have a boutique coffee experience – serving great coffees from the finest coffee farms in the world. A trend-setting Ramen truck serves what many believe to be the very best Ramen experience in Ireland.
This is an all-weather market for the most part with at least 40 other market stalls on our opening day, including crafts, health products, speciality foods, health foods, street foods, music, body art and grooming. This has now been scaled back for a period of time to comply with HSE guidelines
We have designed a water harvesting system utilising the vast collection area of our building's roof. Our underground storage tanks will store water to be used
for washing, flushing toilets plus
building and yard cleaning.
Our extensive flat roof area offers an ideal site for the installation of solar panels to contribute to our sustainability and natural energy consumption focus. Our target is to create a project that from an energy standpoint is self-sufficient.
A local community group will utilise our site for planting vegetables, flowers and plants for the benefit of those in our community. This community initiative brings genuine life and human exchange to our area, which will be of benefit to everyone.
Re-configuring shipping containers to house our market stalls is both cost efficient, eye-catching and positively contributes to our sustainability targets.
We use our waste outputs as fuel to power heating boilers. Here cardboard, wooden pallets and other natural waste materials are saved from landfill.
We produce BioGas through anaerobic digestion of organic waste (or biomass) and can then burn to produce electricity and heat for the Marina Market.
We have a dedicated arts/performance/music/theatre unit for hire. Come visit this gigantic multi-purpose events space, it will blow your mind.
Recently, contemporary Spanish dance star Inma Pavon (live performances, art installations, film and photographic artworks) and talented Cork videographer (multi disciplinary visual artist) Rob Monaghan shot this beautiful short film called 'Look Inside', in our warehouse before renovations.
Across the river, from the Train Station (pic above) the red arrow points to the Marina Market beside the tall grain silos. The Marina Market offers a wonderful sense of history amidst some tremendous new construction projects in this area of the city.
From the landmark Idle Hour pub, walk from Albert Quay along Victoria Road, and down Centre Park Road, a five-minute stroll which lands you at the entrance to the Marina Market.
